South Carolina Fire-Eater by Holt Merchant (Hardback)


The Life of Laurence Massillon Keitt 1824-1864

An illustrated book-length biography of one of the most notorious advocates of secession and apologists for slavery. A politician who wanted to be a statesman and a distinguished military leader, Keitt was a U. S. congressman in the 1850s — he signed the Ordinance of Secession, and represented his rebellious state in the Confederate Congress in 1861. Through this thoroughly researched volume, Holt Merchant offers a comprehensive history of an important South Carolina figure.
